Raising Him Alone Book - Things Black Women Can Do to Raise Boys to be Men
by David Miller and Matthew P. Stevens
Raising Him Alone is a proud provider of valuable resources that support single mothers raising boys. Please revisit our site soon as we will be offering some beneficial products for online purchase.
Raising Him Alone is more than just a book. It is a source of inspiration for the millions of single mothers who struggle daily with the challenges of raising healthy and productive boys to become responsible men.
The book is based on hundreds of interviews, focus groups and discussions with single mothers who are raising boys.
Additionally, many fathers were interviewed who desperately want to be in their sons lives, but are excluded from the process for a myriad of reasons.
Raising Him Alone (book) honors the struggles of single mothers raising boys through providing daily lessons that range from talking to boys about sex to assisting mothers with the process of dating.
Many of the statistics on Black men and boys are painful and are often daunting. For example, the most recent report on graduation rates among African American males published by the Schott Foundation indicates that in many US cities African American males are dropping out at rates that exceed 65%. The cities include but are not limited to Indianapolis, Detroit and Baltimore. With the lowest graduation rates in the nation among African American males, Indianapolis and Detroit’s graduation rates can only be viewed as a public health concern.
We rarely hear about the countless numbers of mothers who are successfully raising boys alone. The book underscores the need for mothers to be more willing than ever to sacrifice to support positive Black male development. This sacrifice includes developing a greater understanding of contemporary issues that effect Black males as well as getting mothers and fathers to be willing to reconcile old wounds.
The book serves as a voice of reason that tells us how important it is to rescue our boys from failing communities and failing schools.
Finally, we hope that Raising Him Alone (book) compels mothers to band together to address the challenges of being a single mother. After reading Raising Him Alone, please make sure you pass this book along to other mothers who can benefit from the lessons and the wisdom of others who have successfully navigated the world of being a single parent.
